Two-year fight ends Ex-dancers get visas MOSCOW (CP) Jewish ballet dancer Valery Panov and his wife Galina have been told to report to the Leningrad visa office amid reports that Soviet authorities have decided to let them emigrate to Israel, friends of the couple said Friday. The Panovs have been waiting for permission to leave for two years. The friends, reached in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius where Galina was undergoing medical treatment, said friends in Leningrad had telephoned to say that the visa office had asked to see the couple. Galina, 24, also a dancer, is expecting their first child. The friends said they understood the Panovs were going to be allowed to leave the country, but would only believe it when their documents "are in their hands." They added that Panov himself was in Moscow, but was leaving Friday night for Leningrad. He was discharged from a Minsk hospital Wednesday after receiving treatment for food poisoning. Earlier, Soviet sources said the Panovs were free to leave as soon as they collected their visas. The development comes a few days before the Balshoi Ballet company is due to start a tour of Britain. Many famous names in the British theatrical world said they would boycott the tour or stage demonstrations because of continued Soviet refusals to allow the couple to emigrate. However, sources in Moscow said the decision was not taken because of any outside pressure. Panov, 33, was told last year he could leave but without his wife because of objections by her mother. Panov refused to leave and has since expressed fears that official action was being prepared against him. Both lost their positions with Leningrad's Kirov ballet company after they applied to emigrate in 1972. She is not Jewish. Health branch brands beef claims nonsense OTTAWA (CP) Criticism by the Food Prices Review Board that the federal health protection branch wasn't dili- gent enough in testing ground beef for bacterial content was termed nonsense Friday by the senior official in charge of the branch. Dr. A. B. Morrison, an assistant deputy minister, said his branch doesn't do a lot of testing for bacterial count in ground beef mixtures because food-poisoning bacteria are rare in the product. Food-spoilage bacteria, on the other hand, frequently occur in ground beef, but these bacteria are harmless to humans. Dr. Morrison said in an interview. It would take operating room conditions to prepare and sell meat that didn't have foodspoilage bacteria. Meat will stink and be noticeably spoiled long before it becomes poisonous with dangerous micro-organisms, he said. Accordingly, his food inspection division had higher priorities. "I don't know what they're talking about." he said of the review board's criticism. If food poisoning was a hazard in ground beef, his department would be monitoring it closely. The review board, in a report on ground beef released Thursday, said it is alarming that the health protection branch had only tested 105 samples of ground beef for bacterial content during a two-year period ending last December. The review board said it was also alarming that the consumer affairs department only tested 1.764 samples of ground beef and sausages for high fat content between March. 1972 and March. 1974. of the fact 20 to 33 per cent of the samples were unsatisfactory. J. B. Seaborn, chief of the bureau of consumer affairs, said his food inspection division will be getting more money and staff for more comprehensive inspection programs. Last year. 27 per cent of all lood tests by the division were of ground beef, he said. Eco- nomic fraud in the sale of ground beef was common. Mr. Seaborn said the division planned to get better inspection services into outlying areas where fat content in ground beef was more likely to be excessive. The 1.764 samples taken in the two-year period ending in March was higher than the number of samples taken in the previous two-year period, he said. New treaties OTTAWA (CP) Finance Minister John Turner said Friday negotiations will begin this month and next month for income tax treaties between Canada and four African coun- Coast, Senegal, Kenya and Zambia. Canada has tax treaties with several countries. They deal with the sharing of tax revenues when taxpayers have taxable income in two countries. New Hearst tape tells of love LOS ANGELES (AP) In a taped message received Friday, Patricia Hearst said she was in love with a slain Symbionese Liberation Army member, reviled her family once again and vowed to fight on with the SLA. The 20-year-old fugitive newspaper heiress said she had been in love with who was widely believed to be William Wolfe, one of six SLA members slain in a May 17 Shootout with police in Los Angeles. Miss Hearst referred to her family as the "pig Hearsts." At the Hearst home in Hills- borough, the family spokesman said, "The voice was definitely Patricia's." He said the family was "generally depressed" and had no immediate comment. Calling herself by her SLA name "Tania" and sprinkling her statement with obscenities, Miss Hearst said was reborn on May 17 when Cujo and five other SLA members died in the Shootout. She said SLA members saved her life when they kidnapped her Feb. 4. She said she was amused at speculation that she had been brainwashed into joining her captors, and strongly indicated she would never surrender. She said she had been taught "to shoot first and make sure the pig is dead before splitting." 'While I have no death wish, I have never been afraid of Miss Hearst said. "For this reason, the brainwash duress theory of the pig Hearsts has always amused me. Life is very precious to me. but I have no delusions that going to prison would keep me alive, and I would never choose to live the rest of my life surrounded by Pigs." It was believed the Cujo Miss Hearst spoke of was Wolfe, because he was one of two males killed in the Shootout. The other was Donald (Cinque) DeFreeze, and Miss Hearst referred in the tape to Cinque and Cujo as the two males among the six victims. In Emmaus, Pa., Wolfe's fa- ther. Dr. L. S. Wolfe, said he had been told by a radio station that his 23-year-old son was known to the SLA as Cujo. Earlier Friday he had said he knew that to be the case. Wolfe said Miss Hearst's de- scription of Cujo as a gentle and beautiful man fit his son. "If you are the gentlest of men and afraid of nothing, and see how people are treated, then you must go Wolfe said. He said he wanted to tell Miss Hearst to "come see me because I understand." Young Wolfe had been an adviser to a black-studies pro- gram at Vacaville State Prison, where he met Donald (Cinque) DeFreeze, who became the SLA's leader. "I died in that fire on 54th street, but out of the ashes of it I was reborn. I know what I have to do. My comrades didn't die in vain. "I renounced my class privilege when Cin and Cujo gave me the name Tania. "Cujo was the gentlest and most beautiful man I ever knew. He taught me the truth as he learned it from the beau- tiful brothers in California's concentration camps. "We loved each other so much. And his love for the NOTICE!

"Our relationship's foundation was our commitment to the struggle and our love for the people. It's because of this that I still feel strong and determined to fight." Speaking of the Slain SLA members, Miss Hearst said: "We mourn together, and the sound of gunfire becomes sweeter." IDENTIFY HARRISES The 33-minute tape, found in an alley by radio station KPFK employees after a telephone call, also contained the voices of a man and woman calling themselves "Tico" and "Yolanda." A radio station spokeswoman said the voices were ap- parently those of William and Emily Harris, thought to be the only remaining SLA members who are being sought along with the newspaper heiress. Tico and Miss Hearst said the three were calling themselves the "Malcolm X Combat Unit of the SLA." Tico and Yolanda both denied that DeFreeze shot himself in the head during the Shootout, as the Los Angeles coroner has said. They accused the police of starting the fire that destroyed the house in which the SLA members died. The FBI said Miss Hearst took part in a Shootout along with the Harrises at a sporting goods store a day before the May 17 gun battle. The three are being sought on federal and state charges and are considered "armed and extremely dangerous fugitives." "The name Cujo means 'un- conquerable.'" Miss Hearst said in the tape. "It is the per- fect name for him. Cujo con- quered life as well as death by facing them and fighting. "Neither Cujo nor I had ever loved an individual the way we loved each other, probably because our relationship wasn't based on Slain lover? bourgeois values, attitudes and goals. "I was ripped off by the pigs when they murdered Cujo, ripped off the same way that thousands of sisters and broth- ers in this fascist country have been ripped off (of) people they love." She talked fondly of her SLA comrades. Of DeFreeze she said, "Cinque loved the people with tenderness and respect. They listened to him when he talked because they knew that his love reflected the truth and the future "Cin knew that to live was to shoot straight.... He'd kick our asses if we didn't hop over a fence fast enough or keep our asses down while practicing. "Most importantly, he taught me how to show my love for the people. He helped me see that it's not how long you live that's important, it's how you live...." She said the Malcolm X Combat Unit was a leadership training cell, and all members are "prepared to function on our own if necessary" until connected with other combat units. "The idea that we are lead- erless is absurd as long as any SLA elements are alive."
